The plot: Romantic weekend getaway plans take an unexpected turn when two very different couples both end up "double-booked" for a friend's cabin at Lake Tahoe.  Neither couple wants to leave and circumstances change so that none of them can leave. The chaos that ensues has lots of twists and turns in their humorous attempts to bond against the forces of nature and with evil lurking about.
